RE : looking to replace my Benjie t6: what should I get?

There’s no really any interesting on playing 24 Bitt lossless files with Rockbox, since none of the supported players do have a 24 Bits DAC anyway.


Honestly, as far as I like Rockbox, and as far as accessibility is concerned,

An used Iphone with 256 GB memory and a wired 24 Bits DAC with proper app would give much more pleasure to deal with than the Rockbox spoken interface which is outdated anyway.


Just think about it.

The main question is what form factor do you need -- The T6 is pretty

tiny, and all of the readily-available alternatives are larger.


The various EROSQ/K clones are plentiful (and new).  On the used market

it's nearly impossible to go wrong with an old "classic-style" iPod, as

there's a healthy aftermarket for replacement parts and you can also

replace their hard drives with flash.


The old Sansa units (eg Fuze, Fuze+, clips) too, and as long as you get

one that can use an SD card as the onboard flash is known to wear out.
